I can't believe how bleak things look in regards to independent media in this town. All the news this week about KBOO and the Alliance is bumming me out. But maybe it will help to transform things.
I have been frustrated with KBOO, the Alliance, and Indymedia for a while now. They all have their strengths and weaknesses, but the weaknesses seem to taking over lately, and the three mediums seems to do very little to compliment each other. I'm sure that folks have different takes on all this, but it seems like there are tremendous resources out there, especially at KBOO. But these resources don't really add up to too much. I'm tempted to go into my particular grievances with all three forms of media, but I don't want the discussion to go there. I'm much more interested in looking at what's needed, what's available, and what can be done to build a new independent media with the resources available.
